Television stations Fox 23, KOKI, and My Tulsa 41, KMYT, have new leadership.
Cox Media Group announced Monday that Greg Bilte has been named general manager and Suzanne Nadell news director, effective immediately.
A news release noted that Bilte and Nadell will create cross-platform collaboration opportunities with CMG's radio cluster and build a strong relationship with Internet and cable provider Cox Communications in Tulsa.
Holly Allen, former general manager, and Matt Brown, former news director, are no longer at the company, said Cox spokesman Andy McDill.
In the release, Bill Hoffman, CMG's executive vice president of marketing, said Bilte and Nadell have displayed phenomenal talent within CMG.
"Greg and Suzanne will play pivotal roles in leading the professionals at KOKI-TV and KMYT-TV to continue informing, inspiring, entertaining and improving the Tulsa community," Hoffman said.
Before being named general manager, Bilte was director of sales at KTVU Fox 2, KICU TV36 and KTVU.com in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"This is a great opportunity to be part of Cox Media Group's growth in the Tulsa broadcast market and to lead a team that is truly dedicated to its audience and customers," Bilte said in the release. "Additionally, I'm looking forward to coming to the Tulsa area and becoming part of the thriving community."
Nadell most recently was executive producer for early evening newscasts at CMG's WSB-TV in Atlanta.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to become part of the KOKI news team and Tulsa community," she said in the release. "I also look forward to joining an already strong news team. We'll work together to serve the community by delivering news that's important to the community plus the most accurate weather information to keep families safe."
CMG purchased Fox 23 and My Tulsa 41 in December from Kansas City, Mo.-based Newport Television LLC.
